What is this chain holder actually called?

Looking for what this chain holder / block is actually called (or is it a custom item?)

Chain Latch. Looks made of steel, easily replicated.

Google banjo chain hook. Not 100% the same but they are commonly used in the construction world.

It's obvious but when installed, angle them slightly away from the pull of the chain to help it wedge in.
I've also seen them with a weld bead or a lip added on the slack side of the fork that helps retain the chain from slipping up and out as it's being tensioned.
